Welcome to our school website. We are a large and friendly Church of England school in the heart of Bedale with the motto "Learning and Caring Together." All our staff are committed to our pupils receiving the highest quality teaching and the best care, guidance and support so that they may reach their full potential. We are also passionate about sport, entering our teams into local competitions. Our pupils also have access to a range of after-school clubs aimed at broadening their experiences. At Bedale we love music and drama, producing high-quality shows, concerts and productions throughout the year. Our standards are set high and I am proud to say that our school was judged by Ofsted in November 2018 to be "good" with Early Years provision, personal development, behaviour and welfare all being rated as "outstanding".
We welcome interest from prospective parents and are happy for you to visit the school at any time.
